If you’ve ever had Mexican corn on the cob, then you know how simple it easy to turn a standard ear of corn into an amazing, flavorful treat that will have your taste buds screaming with joy. It’s basically a grilled corn on the cob, slathered in a spicy mixture of mayonnaise or crema, salt, a hint of lime, and chili powder, and then sprinkled with cotija cheese. It is AMAZING.


In today’s recipe, I’ve taken all those wonderful flavors of the Mexican corn on the cob and transformed it into a tasty, easy-to-eat salad instead. My Mexican Street Corn Salad is not only a breeze to make, it’s spicy, smoky, tangy, and incredibly delicious.


Mexican Corn Salad, also known as Esquites, is traditionally made with corn that is sauteed in butter with onions, salt, and chopped chiles, and then topped with varying combinations of fresh toppings like mayo, salt, chili powder, hot sauce, and lime juice. This popular side dish recipe is a staple in Mexican culture. You’ll find it often being sold at food carts, in little cups, and it’s a great way to take advantage of seasonal supplies of corn.


3/4 cup light sour cream
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
3 cups fresh corn kernels (about 5 ears)
1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1 cup finely chopped green onions
